Gyroscope

Gyroscope

Melbourne House, 1985

You control a gyroscope trying to keep it on the surfaces on screen. If you navigate off a surface you fall off and lose a life. You have to successfully navigate numerous levels in the game in this way. It uses a slightly odd-looking 3d view. Things get more complicated in later levels as aliens attempt to knock you off the ledges, or kill on contact.
